Woohoo! Everyone's had some great weigh-ins this morning!

No new low for me yet, but I AM down the half pound of bounce weight from yesterday and back to 153... so I'll definitely take that as a good WI

Hoping to head to the park again today to de-stress a bit, and get some walking in... I'm not usually much of an exercise enthusiast (seriously, if you're hypo and untreated, good luck exercising ) but it's nice for me to get out once in a while. Especially when I've been woken up at 8am already by my neighbors upstairs, ushering in what appears to sound like a herd of elephants that are now tap dancing on my ceiling

Hopefully no sunburn this time though! Darin, if you can add a sound proofing device to your wonderful all purpose miracle invention I might be persuaded to stay indoors more often and avoid such perils

There is no chart Michelle. The type of ketones tested by the stix is different from the type tested by the strips. From what I've read there doesn't appear to be a proportional relationship between the two types of ketones. Even if there is such a relationship and it is measurable, the accuracy of the stix is thrown off by hydration levels.

Good Calories Bad Calories is available as an audio book. A friend of mine lent me a copy.

I'm kinda surprised with it. From what I'd seen other people say about the difference between it and WWGF I thought GCBC would be much more, I guess, science geek technical nitty gritty. But, to me, WWGF is like an abridged version of GCBC with GCBC having a lot more detail about the dark and evil history of mainstream nutrition and how it ignored inconvenient facts.

Okay, time for another "Ask Darin" moment

I know you don't advocate exercise of any type really (and honestly, neither do I for the most part... partially because my body won't let me do much of it anyway right now ) but I know you were saying that strength training is still in line with what you consider to be okay during the weight loss/fat loss stage.

Do you suppose Callanetics fits into that strength training category? Or do you think that would hinder things?

I've been debating trying it out for a while, first telling myself I'd wait until my first goal (3 pounds away now) and then saying I'd wait until my second goal instead (8-13 pounds away). Now I'm kind of on the fence about when to try it out because I'm terrified even at 2x a week for one hour it might stall my weight loss or have me gaining all over the place

Really, I just know I need to tone up a bit and I'm hoping it'll help a little with the loose skin feeling I have in certain spots (stomach, thighs, upper arms... the usual offenders). I don't want to build a BUNCH of muscle or anything, so Callanetics seems like a good starting option just because it's not lifting weights or hopping on one of those gym machines.

Any thoughts? I know YOU'VE probably never tried it before, but maybe you've heard something in a podcast some place about it or you have some insight on whether that falls into the "strength training" and therefore acceptable category. Other than that all I'll likely be doing this spring/summer is walking around a park. I don't run or jog or bike or anything horrid like that

Okay, dying over here I'm so glad I'm in good company on this board... HUGE SW fan here (I'm actually wearing a Boba Fett t-shirt right now, LOL) and yeah, he killed it. He not only killed it... he killed it, stomped on its remains, and then sold it to Disney for the burial rights

When I started doing Callanetics 3x a week, I didn't gain anything. I didn't lose for those two weeks either, but I dropped an entire inch off my waist and have actual definition in my legs now. After a couple of weeks, I started losing normally again.

My advice is to start sooner rather than later. Callanetics doesn't add bulk, it adds muscle tone and makes you look better.

Thank you for that! That's really why I looked into Callanetics is because it tones you rather than adding bulk... I already have a decent amount of muscle in my legs and my lower arms, so I definitely don't need more bulk Toning though, I could definitely use! Especially with swimsuit season coming up

I think my biggest fear is seeing the number climb back up on the scale or not budge, even though I KNOW I'd be looking better from it and losing inches. I'm just one of those people who is VERY attached to the number on the scale despite knowing I shouldn't be That's why I originally wanted to wait until goal, because if my weight loss halted at that point... that'd be okay, because I wasn't trying for any more anyway I worry that I'll halt my progress and I'll just start to get that hopelessness that kicks in whenever I feel like I'll NEVER get to my goal. I think I must be impatient

Anyway, thank you for your response! That gives me some hope When you started to lose again, was that after you quit Callanetics entirely? Or do you still do Callanetics now and lose while on it?

I totally get what you mean. I am skeered to exercise much cause it always seems to stall me. Right before I started finally losing I did a 2 hour work (turbo jam and Callanetics) out one day and new I would gain. I did gain up to 161 but about 2 or 3 days later I started losing. But since I have been losing the only exercise I have done is walk. I keep thinking I will do Callanetics again but I am afraid of a stall. When I am losing I hate to change anything.
Callanetics seems like it really works though, from what little I have done.

Melanie, I just did a search and found this thread which mentions callanetics. I didn't go thru the whole thing but maybe you can find an answer there?
CALLANETICS BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS

ETA: here's another Callanetics!

Apparently it's pretty popular with low carbers...here's another: CALLANETICS Challenge APRIL 2013

I'm not real sure Melanie. It looks like cardio but claims to build strength without bulk.

Strictly speaking, that doesn't sound like it qualifies. The reason moderate resistance training fits NK (and LC) so well is that it adds metabolically active muscle tissue. But Callenetics, from what I've just read, sounds more like what almost any non-resistance exercise claims as a benefit - better fitness.

The thing about exercise, even very moderate strength building, is that once you do it you *have* to not forget you are doing it. Don't let scale fluctuations make you doubt yourself. Don't get trapped into thinking there is some sort of exercise to weight loss ratio. Just because so and so does 20 hours a week and lost 725 point 6 pounds in the first 9 days doesn't mean that anyone else will. You can't compare their results to your own because with exercise your phenotype is Supreme Lord and Commander of your fitness destiny.

On the other hand...

You are not that far from goal and I don't see any reason to actually hit whatever the goal number is before beginning a fitness program if you want to incorporate that at some point anyway.

Weight loss may not be a benefit from a properly executed exercise plan but a properly executed exercise plan of any sort has a zillion health benefits.

A strong argument can be made for starting to exercise well before goal weight. It gives you a chance to explore various exercise routines of interest to you. It allows you to slowly ramp up to be at full stride when you are satisfied with your weight (hit goal or just think wow I look great!). The feedback is generally positive - you've lost a lot of body fat so the muscle or tone can really pop when you are a noob - so, since you are already interested in being gorgeous (or devastatingly get flirted with handsome for us guys) you are sort of self-propelled forward towards that goal.

I found a very old Before & After thread that is still getting posted to:

CALLANETICS BEFORE & AFTER PHOTOS

...and this months challenge thread:

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ex...-new-post.html

...and finally, Michelle is a fan of Callenetics and participates in both those threads so she might have some insights.

I think people eat them without really knowing what they are( the kitchen staff are killing themselves laughing and staggering around in the back room when the poor slobs order them thinking they are eating something 'exotic'.

I'll never be able to visit page 63 of this thread ever again, without being emotionally scarred..

I am very new to this. I am on Atkins and have been on a stall. Proabably related to not eating enough calories. Any suggestion? I did really well on induction. My friends suggested fat diet to get farther in ketosis. I read allot of neg things lately about the ketone sticks that they arent accurate. How does everyone measure?
